France's attempts to counter the radicalization of its young people are in turmoil, with a group home intended to turn them away from Islamist extremism empty, the head of a highly publicized nonprofit convicted of misuse of public funds, and plans to segregate prison inmates suspected of harboring extremist ideas abandoned.France is not the only country reconsidering how it responds to radicalization.The hope is that the story will raise doubts in the minds of anyone considering the same course, but the essential problem is measuring success, said Muriel Domenach, who leads the new effort to reboot France's anti-radicalization initiative.The main way to measure if the country is making progress in its fight to change that is the rapid decline in young people leaving, said Domenach, who was the consul general for France in Istanbul when French departures were at their height.France continues to monitor 2,400 people it considers at risk for radicalization and 1,000 families.
